Just a reminder about the Woldsman. This 50 miler is an ideal warm up for the Hundred, as well as a good introduction to this distance for first timers. Driffield Showground has ample room, camping and floor space is available on the Friday, but this must be booked in advance. See entry details within this topic or on EYLDWA site.

Re. Heart of Scotland 100 rules of entry

These have now been updated to clarify the situation regarding qualifying events.

The effect of the rule changes is that no entry will be accepted unless it is accompanied by evidence of qualification. This means that if entries come in fast and there is a draw in December, only people who have already qualified will be included. LDWA members will receive priority over non-members, in the event of a draw being required.

The latest date for a qualifying event has also changed, to 1st May. This means that an April event such as the Woldsman _could_ be used as a qualifying event (just). (This would mean delaying entry until very late, at the risk of there being no places left.)

We hope you'll agree that the amended rules are clearer and fairer.

The full rules can be found on the Heart of Scotland 100 website. Entry forms will be available for download from the site from 1st October.

Garfield Can You clarify the qualifying entry requirement for the HOS 100.
As I see it, you are saying that:
1) Any one can enter for the 100 with or with out a qualifying walk.
2) But will need a qualifying walk before the 100 starts.

So if some one who has not got a qualifying walk enters the 100 and a draw is needed that person could get an entry before a person who already has a qualifing walk.

This raises other issues.
1)If that person then fails to get a qualifying walk in before the 100 starts what happens to their place?.
2)Has some one who has done several 100’s or a person who has got their qualifier in time and trained hard for maybe 12 months got to go on a waiting list?

Surly this can not be right or acceptable. Only those that have a qualifying walk should be entered in to any draw and then those that are expecting but have not got a qualifier should be put on a waiting list.

Hi Andreas - if you're thinking of using the Woldsman as a Heart of Scotland 100 qualifier, you'll need to make sure you get your entry in in time for the closing date of December 5th 2009. If we get more than 530 entries by that date there will be a ballot for places, but yet-to-qualify entries will go into the ballot on the same terms as qualified entries.

When :-) you finish the Woldsman you'll need to get your certificate copy to me as soon as possible to complete your entry process.

Hope this helps.

This looks like a good event for me (public transport access and accommodation). I am certainly planning to take part. Maybe as a runner (slow) or as a walker (slow).
You were saying that this would be a qualifier for the Hundred ? Do you mean the Heart of Scotland 100 ? Could I still qualify for this ? Bearing in mind that entries might be full by the middle of April.

Following the success of this year's event, Woldsman 2010 will take place on Saturday 17th April, starting from Driffield Show Ground at 8am. It will provide an ideal warm up / qualifying event for the hundred as well as the opportunity to tackle 50 miles for the first time. Entry forms will be available in the Autumn. Take a look at the East Yorkshire LDWA web site for pictures of this year's Woldsman.
